Believed to be a true Welsh recipe, Welsh Rarebit is
"Caws Pob" in the Welsh language which literally means cheese
(Caws), roasted or baked (pob). Thanks to Donald for the translation!
The basic Welsh Rarebit recipe consists of a slice of
bread topped with cheese mixed with a splash of beer and Worcestershire
Sauce. From this basic recipe comes our favourite version below.

Finely chop or grate 1 heaped teaspoon of
onion, grate the Cheddar cheese and then mix (use a fork) everything together except
the bread and cayenne pepper.
Place the bread under a medium heat and
toast it. The grill
is better than a toaster because the grill will crisp up the bread better,
rather than burning the surface.
Divide the mixed ingredients
into two and spread on the two pieces of toasted bread. We used brown
bread because we prefer it but white bread will do just as well.
Spread the mixture right to the edge of the toast to prevent the toast
burning when it goes back under the grill. Sprinkle cayenne pepper lightly
over the top of the mixture.
Place the two loaded pieces
of toast under a medium grill. Cook until the cheese is bubbling and has started to turn
brown (the cayenne pepper helps to give a rich colour).
Serve on a plate with some garnish or salad and eat
